THE FBI PLEDGE FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS 



Hura'bly recognizing the responsibilities entrusted to me, I do 
vow that I shall always consider the high calling of law enforcement to *be an 
honorable profession, the duties of which are recognized "by me as both an art 
and a science, I recognize fully my responsibilities to defend the right, to 
protect the weak, to aid the distressed, and to uphold the law in public 
duty and in private living. I accept the obligation in connection with my 
assignments to report facts and to testify without bias or display of emo- 
tion, and to consider the information, coming to ray knowledge by virtue of 
ray position as a sacred trust, to be used solely for official purposes. To 
the responsibilities entrusted to me of seeking to prevent crime, of finding 
the facts of law violations and of apprehending fugitives and criminals, I 
shall give my loyal and faithful attention and shall always be equally alert 
in striving to acquit the innocent' and to convict the guilty. In the per- 
formance of my duties and assignments, I shall not engage in unlawful and 
unethical practices but shall perform the functions of my office without 
fear, without favor, and without prejudice. At no time shall I disclose to 
an unauthorized person any fact, testimony, or information in any pending 
matter coming to my official knowledge which may be calculated to prejudice 
the minds of existing or prospective judicial bodies either to favor or to 
disfavor any person or issue. While occupying the status of a law enforce- 
ment officer or at any other time subsequent thereto, I shall not seek to 
benefit personally because of my knowledge of any confidential matter which 
has come to my attention, I am aware of the serious responsibilities of ray 
office and in the performance of my duties I shall, as a minister, seek to 
supply comfort, advice and aid to those who may be in need, of such benefits; 
as a soldier, I shall wage vigorous warfare against the enemies of my coun- 
try, of its laws, and of its principles; and as a physician, I shall seek to 
eliminate the criminal parasite which preys upon our social order and to 
strengthen the lawful processes of our body politic. I shall strive to be 
both a teacher and a pupil in the art and science of law enforcement. As 
a lawyer, I shall acquire due knowlege of the laws of my domain and seek 
to preserve and maintain the majesty and dignity of the law; as a scientist, 
it will be my endeavor to learn all pertinent truth about accusations and 
complaints which come to my lawful knowledge; as an artist, I shall seek to 
use my skill for the purpose of making each assignment a masterpiece; as a 
neighbor, I shall bear an attitude of true friendship and courteous respect 
to all citizens; and as an officer, I shall always be loyal to ray duty, my 
organization, and ray country. I will support and defend the Constitution 
of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; I will bear 
true faith and allegiance to the same, and will constantly strive to cooper- 
ate with and promote cooperation between all regularly constituted law en- 
forcement agencies and officers in the performance of duties of mutual in- 



terest and obligation. ^

Dear Sir: 

Mr. E. 0. DOVAT, CasMer, Park National Bank, Knoxville, 
Tennessee, has been very friendly with me and evidenced an interest 
in the xwrk of this bureau in general. On several occasions he has 
mentioned to me the desirability of joining the Kixvanis Club of 
Ejaoxville, of which he is a member. Mr. DOVAT called on me with 
Mr. C. E. JOEDAHf, JR., City Freight Agent for the Louisville and 
Nashville Railroad Company, on February 17th with further respect to 
joining that organization, and after some discussion I agreed to 
affiliate with it, believing that a great deal of good can be ac- 
complished thereby. It will enable me to meet business and profes- 
sional men of this community with whom I would otherwise not have 
contact. Several community organizations have at various times men- 
tioned membership to me, however, no definite answer had been given 
them, and I believe that associations in the Kiwanis Club e^ual, if 
not surpass, those of the other organizations. 

Very truly yours,

Dear Sir; 



1 iiaT0 not«a a rec^iut tendency on tit© part of iaaiiy field 
officea to «et out general l^ads for all other officas to check talephona 
book* and city directorlea in tha leading citiea with a riew to locating 
fugitives whoaa apprehension ia being aought* It appeers to me that in 
the aTerage case this ia a uselesa procedure to follow and a i^aste of 
time, and except in »ajor c^sea, unleas instructed to the contrairy by the 
Bureau, such leads vill not be coTored by this off ice# In raost ca^es 
there is no evidence to indicate that the fugitires Mght visit or laaka 
contacts in one section of the country and the leads are being set out 
for all offices without ret;ards to known contacts and acq^uaintances* 

5Bxe situation appears to me to be similar to the wide-*- 
spread circularization of State Motor Vehiclo Bureaus, as it i^as practiced 
before the Bureau established the rule that prior authority must be secured 
for all such circuliarlaatiojis^ It occurs to me that the Bureau mny possibly 
desire to issue b<m& instructions to the various offices with reference to 
the general searching of city directories, as mentioned above,

Remarks: 

This Special Agent in Charge has gro\yn in maturity, improved 
in appearance, and developed a more pleasing type of personality, v/ith 
yet some Germanic tendencies which still will stand further improvement, 
but I T/ould consider him a hard worker who definitely defines his objective 
and I would rate him, in spite of his youthfulness and nevmess as a 
Special Agent in Charge, in at least an average status. Investigative 
ability - good; administrative ability - good; salesmanship - good.

MMORMDTOI FOR THE DIRECTOR 



On November 26, 1938, I spent several hours in looking 
over the New Orleans Office. I have always been an enthusiastic 
booster for Mr. R. B.^iood and I frankly believe he possesses 
very desired possibilities for increased responsibility. Hood 
has developed materially insofar as his personal aggression is 
concerned without losing the polish and courteous manner which 
has always been his most outstanding characteristic. He is 
exceedingly energetic and the New Orleans Office from all out- 
ward observations, vfithout taking it completely apart, is 
functioning in a very satisfactory manner. 

The Office is spotless, the supply room, detention 
rooms, vault, et cetera are maintained in excellent condition, 
the road work box and tickler box appear to be properly main- 
tained and Hood apparently knows the intricate details of each 
case being handled by each Agent, 

As indicated I believe that Hood possesses definite 
possibilities for increased responsibility, but I believe it 
would be well if possible to make a detailed inspection" of the 
)(Nev/QtiesQS Office in order to determine just what condition it 
is in. 



Resi?gbtfully, 





EDWARD A. TAMM

aiEMORAMDIJM FOR THE DIEECIOR 



Re: SAC R. B. HOOD 



Inspector Egan called from Nev/ Orleans and stated that after a 
preliminary siirvey of the Ne\T Orleans Office he can consciencionsly 
recommend IJtr* Hood » 5 capacity to handle a larger office, fe. Egan 
stated that he has talked with about 14 or 15 agents, each of them 
advising that SAC Hood is fair, hard-working, good at detail, et 
cetera, Mr, Egmi fvirther stated that, as a matter of fact, Ifr, Hood 
is a bit too good at detail to the end that he neglects his contact 
making activities. I was advised that Inspector Egan could not get 
much of a line on SAC Hood's contacts j that he has heard to the effect 
that v/hen SAC Hood does make contacts, they are excellent, but that Mr. 
Hood has been working in the office much more than he has been making 
contacts. 

Mr. Egan iaformed that he has completed about 200 of the 700 cases 
pending and has fouad nothing worse than delinquencies existing. 
However, he has not been able to find a contact file for the Nevir 
Orleans Office. I was told that SAC Hood's sources of information — 
his confidential infoimants, et ^et^a— ^^Qjust about as bad as they 
are in every other office. JAW D loO^r 

In answer to issf inquiries, Mr. Egan replied tliat jflie administrative 
setup in the New Orleans Office is good^ that Mr. Hood has the respect 
of every employe; that each is working hard for himj and that they 
thinlc he is the best SAC to ever be in charge of the New Orleans Office, 
including Messrs. Conroy, Ladd, and Tftxitley. Mr. Egan indicatecL that 
his reaction to the examination of the New Orleans Office, so f4^,/%as 
been that SAC Hood is "tops". 

In conclusion fir. Egan Suggested that perhaps you wotold v/ant to cill 
Mr. Hood to Washington for the purpose of talking to him about his 
taking up too much time on detail work and the lack of contact develop- 
ment in his district.

Re: Srmoial Agent JQSEHi H, ZIEfiT^R 
Dear Sir: 

this mill refer to telephonic conversation had on thit 
date with Aseistant Director W. Re QWm idth reference to an inci- 
dent that occurred in the New Orleans territory some we^s ago> at 
which tiaae Agent JOSSBH He ZIEGIER was endeavoring to effect the ap- 
prehension of a fugitive* 

1 clearly recall that some three laonths ago I bad just 
lAf t the office for dinner in the evening when I was called back from 
the elevator in the hall to receive a long distance call from that 
Agent. As I recall it, he stated that a fugitive had just got away 
from him. I asked hia for the details of the incident and he stated 
that it had been raining in the northern part of louisiana for ap- 
proxlanately one-half day and conditions of the roads and in the 
swastps where the investigation was being conducted were very bade 
He stated that he was in the coropany of a Deputy Sheriff, whose name 
I do not recall, and that together they had gone to the home of some 
relal^ve of this fugitive and as they approached it someone was seen 
to leave the house either by a window or by a door. It is my distinct 
impression that the identity of the individual was not known at the 
time and it was not until some relative in the house had been ques- 
tioned that it was ascertained the person seen leavtog the premises 
was in fact the fugitive. 

I am quite positive that ZIECEER did not tell me he had 
personally talked to an individual later ascertained to be the fugi- 
tive, for I would have considered this a veiy serious situation and 
would have personally proceeded to the scene to investigate the mat- 
ter ihorou^y or would have ordered some other Agenl^ to that place 
to properly handle the situation. I do recall instructing him to re- 
main at the hotise rather than traiRp throu^ the swamps under the 
conditions as they then existed, md because of the fact that he was 
not familiar with the terrain.

5Jhere was absolutely no indication of any failure on tiw

thit the tr-vem keeper turned the brief case over to the iiistrict

were some pe.pers of u peculiLX character. Indicating birr de? Is in

ere thought to bo in code. Henderson further t-dvised he w.is going to 
mikre copies of these papers jnd then place the brief crse back in the 
tavern. Mr. R-rry advised thi^t Henderson did jK-ke the copies vnd rlso 
promised to hold thera for the Los /Jageles Office. 

Mr. Hood hts been advised by U. ij. Attorney Hsirrison tbt the District

*'Normc.n Henderson, San Bernardino County i-'istrict

1 LBked i.gent Pc^rry whether he k d inquired of Henderson whether he 
tniide such a statement ^^nd xwb advised that this: h^^d not been done 
since ha had sent the teletype to the Bure£.u» 

I told Mr* Ft rry thtit first of all I would ask Henderson if he made 
such h, st£,temont end if he ct-ys that he did, then to point out to 
him tk^t v/e hj;ve k;d a men working on the matter to determine whether 
there is uny Federal violiAion \vithin the Bureau* c jurisdiction end 
to ask him just v/ht:t he merms^ further, that should inquiries be 
mcde by the press, to ^.dvise tb^t Henderson h:^,s not been rebuffed £*nd 
as a m^itter of fiict the Burecju hj.c been checking into the mr^tter to

In the event Henderson denies mcikinj such a statement^ I tdvised Mr, 
Pcriy tkit upon being contacted by the nowsprpers to stcLte thet he 
is not only ht ^: loss to understand t'kt the article is cJoout but 
that Henderson hcvs denied mcking such statement* 

Jlr, Parry stated he would be guided by nc^y instructions* 

F5Spectfully> 
I donH like this at all*

In accordance with your notation contained 
.on my memorandum of March 18, 19S9 entitled ^'Subversive 
i.ctivitle^j Otto A. L, Eitter^*^ I calledHSAC Hood^pt Los 
Angeles hud stated you virere most disappoBfnteff^Txhe 
menner in which. Agent Parrj- handled the nev/spaper comment 
of the Los i^ngeles Times in which Norman Henderson, 
Investigator of the San Bernardino District Attorney's 
Office, t^BS quoted as ssying he had referred this case 
to the Department of Justice and 'had been rebuffed. I 
pointed out that the fir^t reaction -of the man acting 
in charge of the office should have, been to get in touch 
vat h Henderson and see whether he had made such a state- 
ment, and if he did, what he meant by it* I advised £.aC 
Hood that you felt Agent Parry had been dead on his feet 
in not rallsring.to the defense of the. Bureau, and vAen 
the. newspapers called him in not Stating the' facts of 
the case. In other v^oi^ds, 'Henderson accused us of 
•something ?/hich was untrue and we left it go unchallenged, 
the situation being particularly bad 'in view of 'the 
ne?/spaper relationship becoming, increasingly tense all ' 
the tigie. 

Hood stated he would go into the matter in 
detail with Parry and instruct him as to' future action'. : ' 
However, I ^informed Hood youf^el we should have someone 
who is a little bit more on his toes as Number One Men at 
Los Angeles, and' that he should look over his staff and ■ 
send an ail mail special delivery recommendation to the ■ 
Bureau for a man to replace Parry as Number One, Men.

Dear JiiT. Hood;- 

I have noted a nmnber of ins^tances recently vjheroin it appears 
that investif^ative imtters pendin.T in the Los An-eles i^ivision have 
not been receiving prompt attention. There have been delays in a 
number of instances in seeurinr, action upon requests submitted to your 
office from the Washington headquarters of the Bureau, A review/ of the 
v/orl-c throu'^hout the entire field service irdicates that the r)ersonnel 
assigned to the Los /lU'reles Division compares favorably vdth the persoBx^el 
presently assigned to other field offices and I am unable to understand 
the reasons for these delays* 

I would like to have you take the necessary steps to see that 
reouests for investif^ative attention are proDDtly handled and that 
conprehensive reports reflecting the results of these investi.^ations 
are pronptly subiEitted. 

Sincerely yours ^

Re: Condition o£ V^oric in IO0 Angeles 
i%eM Division* 



tear Sin 



Xn reply to your recent coinmunicationa of May 5 and 17, 
1939, I am setting out below a detailed analysis of the work in the 
los Angeles Field ti vision and action tAken by me since my appoint- 
ment as Special Agent in Charge with respect to it* 

An examination of the road work box disclosed it was 
divided into twenty-two sections, which laade it very difficult to 
handle the cards and did not facilitate the assignment of casesj 
this has been reduced to ei^t sections. 

It had been several months since an Agent of this office 
had been on a road trip through the northern portion of the territory 
in iresno and Merced counties* Special Agent E» G, FITCH has been 
handling all the work in this territory except for a trip of several 
days made by Special Agent A» I. HOKfL the delinquent cases in this 
territory have been materially reduced* !I?his portion of the terri-- 
to3?y has be^ assigned to this one Agent exclusively to peroit effi- 
cient handling of the work and to build up contacts there* He has 
been In this area alaioat constantly since his arrival in this office. 
I am of the opinion that s^Lfficient work exists in that poarfcion of 
the territory now and will develop in the future to ^^stify the 
establishment of a resident agency there, and xny recojDmendation as 
to this appointment is being laade the subject of a separate coiamuni- 
cation • That Agent has been handling all work in those sections of 
the road work box labeled ^^Fresna^^ and "Fresno EuraP*. 

Special Agent F, E, MIQIIT is Resident Agent at San Tlego, 
California* VMle he appears to be fully recovered from his illness, 
which required his separation f rt)m the service^ it is important that 
he take safeguards to protect his health and I have insisted that he 
do so, as a result he te.is not performed an iinusual amount of overtime# 
He is handling a vexy large volume of work as will be shown leter in 
this communication* to handles all the work in the areas designated 






i 



director -2- Hay 20^ 1939 

Fes Ccncfitioii of Vbrk 

as ^^Sm rifego" and **San Diego Bural^' in the road work box, 

The itt>rk in the Santa Barbara area la delinquent as there 
is not frequent emergency work there^ matters presently pending there 
are not as urgent as those in other sections of the territory* There 
are at present eleven unassij^ed oases and seventeen unassigned leads 
in this portion of the territory. After hin return from Fresno next 
week, Agent E* iK BITCH will be sent to this area to handle the work 
there as it should not t^e Jnuch time to complete it. 

There is considerable w&rk in the area of San Bernardino 
and Special Agent W* E» EQIGE tras sent into this area injrediately 
after hic^ arrival in thiflj office with as smich of the work as I be- 
lieved he could capably handle at one tine* He spent two weefci? there 
and on his! retua^n to the office for dictation I kept him in loe Angeles 
to engage in Bank Robbery investigations as the nu»iber of such cases 
has increased to the ix>int where one Agent could not possibly hj&ndle 
the investigatior?^ of all cases • I wish to point out that during the 
year I03B there were I3 Pnak Eobbeties within this territory, and to 
cate in 1039 thero hrtvo beon lo nuch offenses or attenpts; one of which 
i0 not under the Buareea^u ;3urisdiction> but a tentative identification 
of a Bureau ftigltive in fehe case makes investigation necessar;r* I 
wish to point out that this is a considerable increase in the volume 
of such work but the nurber of delinquent cases has increased but two 
since Koverfiber of 193B» Thin increase of two delinquencies was men- 
tioned in your letter oi reference* I realise the irr^portence of such | 
ca^es and for this rearon on Fay I5, 193^ Special Agent \L £• TEICE 1 

was assi^ed to this tj'pe of case* Special Agent H, A» SJflTH has been ' 
handling the Bank Robbery mvK ^^ i^ets the case of AimoLD THOMAS KXLfi, 
at al^ as^gned to hiin* With the volmne of Tfork arising out of the 
current cases, two robberies occurring on some days;^ it has been a 
physical impossibilitj for that Agent to keep all these cases up to da.te* 

Vdth the a"isignrt!eat of an additional Agent to this vTork 
it i0 expected that thl^ dcslinciuent condition will be istproved con- 
sidorably* Tvith the a^^sigmnent of this type of work to A.^jent TM-Q'E 
it is not pon$iblc to ; ive the San Beamardino territory to one Arfint 
to handle ^n6 the deli>:qaent wrk there will have to be handled by 
various Agents itho go 5nto ttot ar^^a fro^ time to tine on emergency 
tsatters* ''whenever an Arjent does go there he is given as much work as 



jDirvict03^ «3- llay 20, 1939 



possible to cover in the time he ivill be there* I realiise it is <3e-* 
Birable to have an Agent handle a territory as fully m possible to 
avoid duplication o£ travel, but tl^ere ±^ no Agent presently ava^l*- 
able to handle IMs wntire area* 

Vdthin the metropolitan area q£ Los Angeles there is con- 
siderable wrk in X/^ng Beach and San Pedro ♦ As x'ar as possible this 
is covered by Special Agent ?. X. FAlUa, but many Etattera ari^e in 
this area in the co;irse o£ investiijations by other Agtmts and they 
usually fe;^dle them as they arise* Thia is trae in varioutst eeotions 
of the metropolitan area md it is not in my opinion practical to as- 
sign an Agent to exclusively work ta^ west side oi* to>^> i*or example j 
it appears inore feasible to periait Agents to ^o there during the 
course oX their investigations and have them cover leads froi^ other 
ca^es pending there at the same tiiiie* This> in some- instanoejJ> brings 
up the question of assignment o£ cases mid leads^ >then an Agent has 
the opportunity to conduct aome leads in a ijiven territory, along >vith 
the work presently assigned to him, he is given the lead cards tor 
that work* It Wiay well be timt the ma^or po:Hiion of the investigation 
±B ^li>exihex%i fmd it Cioeti not npooar advisable to asai^ Mm th*; entire 
ca^e, usually ixi uuch caj^^^s the duplicate aasignmont card will be found 
in another section of the road work box* The is^hole purpose of lo^id 
cardg appears to me to be lost if it is necessary to assign the case 
to the Agent if he liapp«ms to have a lead in it unsigned to him* 
Failure to assign such cases to the Agents i^ the criticism of the 
^nanner in Khich X haridled th^ worl: in the liew Orleans^ officr;* 

?Jhen an A:^ent has thirty to forty casea a^signei to l&n 
it appear;^ to Jtie urMse to nssiw hin another becauefe he han one lead 
nsBim^d to him* It In ?ny f^xperii^nae that an Agent cannot sucoese-- 
fully handle thirty-five or forty case*? and keep thw up to date if 
there is extensive activity in them* Soiae of the cases are not goin^^ 
to receive attention and it is to m^ a more accurate picture of th^ 
condition of the woj*: to have such caseB carried unassigned* This is 
why Homn such cas<«fS wer^^r not assigned in Mew Orleans as 1 felt that 
i^ach Agent had a^ many cases assi^ed to hl^* as hf^ could possibly handle* 
1 feel the ??afi5e abo"Jit the volune of work now asaligned to the A^^^ents 
of this office*

He: Condition o£ nbrk 



1 tdah to point out that there la a general increase in 
the number of ca»e3 received of all types, parti<mlarly National Motor 
Vehicle Theft Act, Banlcfuptcy, Espionage, Peraonnel Mattery, and B^nk 
Bobberies* 'The greatest increase is in Espionage matters* These have 
come from the Bureau direct, from the Army and Na^ 3iitelligence and 
from private citiaene here* 

With reference to epecific delinquencies, the AKIOT^D 
THOMAS KiEB caee hae been mentioned » The investigation of the Consol- 
idated Aircraft Corporation Sabotage was dispatched promptly upon its 
receipt for attention at San Blego to the Eesiddnt Agentj it iras re- 
ceived here March 3D, 1939* assigned April 1, 1939* lKi« Resident Agent 
*ivas dilatory in initiating his investigation in Idiis case and it did 
not receive close supervision at the outset* The investigation is pre-*^ 
aently current, reports being subtftitted each week, and this will be 
done until it is completed* 

^e Crash of Bouglas Aircraft Bowbing Plane in Jjob Angeles 
(62^1607) was received in this office April 4, 1939> assigned to Spe- 
cial Agent J. G* HKIIAY on April g, 1939* X felt this Agent was xnost 
qualified to handle the interviews in this case by reason of his ex- 
perience in Union matters* At this particular time that Agent was 
also engaged in investigation of The Silvershirt Legion of America, 
Fox 1"est Coast Theatres, <Judge Manton, and he was engaged in the in** 
vestigation of the liitemational Alliance of Theatrical Stage Birployees, 
Antitrust* Earing this investigation he was specifically instructed to 
proceed idth the Douglas Aircraft case regardless of developments in 
the other investigations* It is realised there was delay in handling 
of this matter and while it appears I have earred in ^ud^ng the im-* 
portance of the cases, the Agent was, I m. certain, fully engaged in 
other very important assignments* 

The case of FEOX CliABWIOK, 1*0* ^?1495> mUxmh tUUiT 
TO AVOID PKOSHJUTIOK (BAfJU ROBBiBl) is in a very delinquent status* 
It its> being reassigned to another Agent in an effort to give it con^ 
tinuous attention as it has not been possible for Special Agent 0* V* 
TjIEEST to give it attention in id.ew of the other work which he has had* 

X am making a careful analysis of the work of each Agent 
cc signed to this office in order to luake certain that each is producing

Reference is siade to Bureau oommunication of !!ay

In thie connection, I am eubndtting triplicate 
copies of a memorandmi prepared by Special Agent F* E. WtlGHP, 
Reeident Agent at San Biego> to utoom this caee was assigned. 


It is true that the investigation in thia case 
was not handled in the manner as instructed by the liureau and 
the Agent to idiom it iras aesi^ied naa dilatory in handling it* 
It is realized, hoi^ever, that it is my responsibility as Agent 
in Charge to supervise investigations and, as j^u were per** 
sonally advised during your visit here, responsibility in this 
particular instance, I feel, is solely my own« 


ICou may rest assured that such delay in any in- 
vestigation will not occur again in any case under my super- 
vision and I sincerely regret that any mbarrassment resulted 
to you and the Bureau as a result of the undue delay in con*-

9:00 P*M, >%rch 30th. lithin my best recollection^ I believe that I 
imn handed the seriala in instant case before X left the h>a Angeles 
Office for Can tlego on April Snd, I939. I'ha xirat day of investiga- 
tive period reflected in repoart of reference is April 3rd, 1939* 

After I had thoroughly reviewed all the aerials and allega- 
tions of the iALTiJi? afficuvit^ I firat i^ent to the office of Co/Grander 
E.r. 2/iOiIARXAa, a. a, Waval Intelligence Officer, 11th &^aval listrictj 
Gomjnander ZAOiiARIAS iiraa not present on that day and I conferred ^dth 
his assistant, M, k\ GOiWl^LL, generally concerning what material Jtdght 
be available to me in the extensive Navy files, as X kam froia previous 
contact there that the files of that office contained iikuch data con- 
cerning the situation presented in instant case, 'x'herefore, lay firat

2ACHARIAS and idth QQiERAL R. H, VAN DE!AN (mentioned below), T*ho t?as 
believed by 2AGHARIAS to have aiinilar infbrmtion* 

The ^*Period for ^hich Fade** in report of reference indicates 
that six separated days were consumed in the investigation and that 
only the interview rdth two individuals are reflected. X tdsh to 
state at this point that the period niates in report of reference are 
not correct; that I did per&rr investigative activity in instant case 
on date J other than those irentioned in report of reference, luring 
the first part of April, Commander ZAChARIAS y^s absent froB San Idego 
tmoh of the tine, and when I was able to find hisi in his office, the 
interview i^as Ijtoited each time because of the pressure of his work.

txon General YAli iWtSi and his files, Bn6 the same was eliirdnated from 
the report of reference by me* Therefore, the report, for the salce of 
continuity and coherence, does not reflect all of the actual infon^iation 
obtained prior to its submission. 

Before rough-drafting report of reference, and durintj tbe 
period rrentioned below, I also intervicv^ed IC^?AL© S\ '^f^lE, director of 
Personnel, at snbject corporation, relative to sabotage in general at 
his plant* Verifying the information received from hiiri depended, in 
part> on obtaining and reviewing certair?. records of subject corporation.

I believe this employee is entitled to a rating of good 
and above average among the Special Agents in Charge • I consider 
him above average in personal qmlities and attitudes, with a slight 
modification in that he evidences some lack of warmth in personality* 
He rated generally from average to higher in skills and is above 
average in mental qualifications* As an investigator, as a salesman 
and as an administrator, I would rate him in a status of good*

Mr. R B. Hood 

Federal Bureau of Investigcution ^ 

U. S. Department of Justice 

810 South Spring, Room 603 

Los Angeles y California 

Dear Mr. Hood: 

Inspector Connelley has called to my attention the fact 
that you have been performing an excessive amount of overtime in 
connection v^ith your duties as Special Agent in Charge of the Los 
Angeles Division. 

The. fact that you have volunta,rily given so Riuch of your 
time to your official duties is, of course ^ deeply gratifying to me 
personally because I feel it is a real indication of interest and 
loyalty. However, I am concerned from the standpoint of your health for 
I knov'/ that too strenuous application over a period of time does tend 
to v/eaken one's resistance. Also^ I knov; from personal experience that 
it is more difficult to maintain alertness .and vigor when one is 
physically exhausted. 

Now that Special Agent Val C. Zimmer has been' assigned to 
the duties of Assistant Special Agent in Charge of your office I am 
hoping the n^ecessity for so much overtime on your part will be relieved. 
It is suggested that as occasions arise making it desirable, in the 
absence of Mr. Ziiaraer, jovl may wish to give experience to Special Agent 
H. K. Mose with the idea of developing him into an Agent qualified to 
handle Number One Man duties. 

Sincerely yours, 



John-Edgar- Hoover

MEMORANDUM FOR TEE DIRECTOR 

While speaking to SAC Hood at Los Angeles 
regarding other matters j I advised him that Captain 
Zacharias of O.N^I. has been very critical of Mr • Hood's 
handling of a matter evidently involving a Naval Reserve 
Officer by the name of Tennyson^ 

Mr. Hood stated that he submitted a letter to 
the Bureau on this matter about November 16» Vfhen asked 
about the fncts of the matter^ Mr. Hood stated that the 
informant^ Young^ had been working for Tennyson^ and had 
also been working for Leon LewiSj a Jewish attorney in 
Los Angeles; that when Young started to work for the 
Bureau^ Captain Zacharias and Mr. Hood agreed that Young 
should not work for anyone else while working for the 
Bureau. He stated that Captain Zacharias made arrange-* 
ments with Lewis whereby Young would not report to him 
in connection with this matter any further y but that it 
appeared that Young was still giving information to Tenny-- 
sok. Mr. Hood stated that he saw Captain Zacharias about 
thiSj and that the Captain agreed that Young should fur- 
nish no more information to Tennyson* He stated that 
Tennyson is merely a Reserve Officer and has no commis- 
sion in the Intelligence Division; that he is merely a 
public^spirited citisen who is a member of the American 
Legion and is interested in subversive activities^ 

I advised ^r . Hood that^ saw a copy of a letter 
that Captain Zacharias wrote to ^i£r. Hood on the 16th or 
17th:, in which the Captain spo£® very sarcastically of 



Mr. Hood^s handling of the m(^wer. 



s 



Mr. Hood stated -S^t he has not had the 
slightest conflict with Captain Zacharias about this 
matter. He stated^that Agent McKee spoke to the Captain 
about this matter^ and that there is no question thatilAb 
the information has to be giv^n to the Bureau alone. /

RE: 



WILLIAM a. BRADFORD; 
SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES 



jC 7/hile in tele-phonic communica-bion with SAC Hood at 

S los Anaeles J advised him that Qg-ptain Zacharias had writte n 
^r_T^ f>-r<:iQnn.J.. l^ tf.^r to n fri.p.nd of hJR in the Navy Department

to see l^insleu but had not done. so and had taken no action 
and was inclined to belittle the information furnished by 
Dinsley . l " [ ;; .Vv"^ 

Mr. Hood advised thatj as he haS told Captain - ' ^\/ 
Zacharias y he does not think much of Doctor- Dins ^e^-^'f^althougW^ 
he is checking on the Doctor ^s information* ^Asl':d^.Matier of <<^ 
background^ Mr* Hood stated that Dinsley became quite prom- 
"vent in the newspapers at the time the King and Queen were 






n the United States^ through furnishing information concern^ 
ing Sean Bussel. Some time after that Dinsley approached 
I Doctor Cogginsj a Navy physician who is working in the Intel-- 
■^ § ligence Section under Captain Zacharias ^ at which time Dinsley 

caA got into a technical discussion with Doctor Coggins on explo-- 
,J^ ^ sives and similar matters and impressed the Doctor with his 

^ capabilities along that line. Dinsley told Doctor Coggins 
5^ ^ a long story about his connections with Bradford^ whom he 
^ ^ knew to be a Nasi agents which story Coggins believed. Mr. 

• /j Hood stated that Captain Zacharias at one timeyipas convinced^ 
- tf \ apparently y that Dinsley *s information was o^^l^ttle value^

*^ ijj has him believing that Dinsley is reliabl'e..' \ ^. '| ' " -^ ' ^

Mr. Hood stated that he was unable -bol contact" Dins ley 
at the time he was requested to do so bv Captain Zacharias ^ 
but that he did talk to him as soon as possible; that he is 
also checking on Bradford to determine the truth of JOinsley ^s 
information* He stated that Dinsley professes to be a former 
member of the British intelligence service; that- this may be 
possible J as there apparently was a man by the name of Dinsley 
in that service at one time. He stated^, however^ that if 
Dinsley was in the service^ he undoubtedly would have been 
removed when his identity f^as disclosed in the^ newspapers about 
a month ago. .Ir*-tr

Mr. Hood stated that Captain Zacharias still be-- 
lieves that Dinsley is with the British intelligence service 
and that through him it will be possible to learn much about 
the British intelligence movement in this country. 

Mr. Hood stated that his office is checking on the 
information furnished by Dinsley^ rather than checking on the 
man himself. He stated^ however^ that it is his impression 
that it would be better to confine the investigation to 
Dinsley in order to prove that he is unr^liable^ but that to 
please Captain Zacharias he is going ah/ad with the present 
investigation*

Dear Sir: 

Reference is made to Bureau instructions to the 
effect that all Special- Agents in Charge must cqmplete the 
Bureau^ s accounting course not later than December Jl^ 1959 ♦ 

1^ failure to comply with instructions is not a 
■vdllful disregard of your orders but it has not been pos- 
sible to devote the time to the study necessary to complete 
that T^ork, The time necessaiy for the study could not be 
taken when my attention was given to other duties^ but with 
Assistant Special Agent in Charge M. W» McFARLIN here I have 
planned^ so far as is possible, a schedule by which I will 
be able to devote the necessary time to this* 

I have made a diligent effort to take time in 
the evenings T/*ien the accounting lessons could be prepared 
but it has not been possible to obtain sufficient time to 
actually complete the lessons. If you desire^ I shall sub- 
mit a record of the time I have spent on official business. 

The work of the Bureau has been my first con- 
sideration since entering the service and it will continue 
to be so, at the sacrifice of things personal and as soon 
as is humanly possible I will submit to the Bureau the ac- 
counting course. 

Very truly yours.

Receipt of Cases 




Mr. F; <t ho

Mr. QuSnn Tt'Hi-ji.

:l 



In accordance -with the Bureau's memorand-um instructing 
that I examine the monthly administrative report of the Los 
Angeles Division to ascertain if cases were being opened 
improperly, this is to advise that I obtained the monthly 
administrative report and called for a large ntmber of sample 
files J however, coincident with their receipt I was required to 
leave the city. 

Just before leaving the city, I asked il5r. Guerin, 
temporarily working in this division, to review the files in 
question and if there was any question in his mind about the 
advisability of opening any of the cases he should retain 
this file for my attention upon my retxirn, Ho such files were 
retained by Mr, Guerin or referred to me for attention. 

This, I believe, was to be expected, because the only 
titles of cases appearing in the monthly admi3iistrative report 
would be those cases which were in a delinquent status. Some 
of them would have had no reports whatsoever siibmitted concern- 
ing the case and, therefore, there would be no file in the 
Bureau, Also, the remainder of the cases would be those of 
a delinquent status which had previous reports submitted and, 
in the event the previous report had shown the case should not 
have been opened there wonld undoubtedly have been correspondence 
between the Bureau and the Los Angeles Office about that 
particular case. It therefore appears that, there/xnadequate 
records available to make such a survey, .-as the one required. 







Mr. Tolson suggested, and I co^^ot, that oK^t^^ occasion.^ 6/ 
' of my proceedii^g from Washington to ^California to^d in the 
reorganization of the State Bureau of Investigation and Identifica- 
tion, that I first go to Los Angeles for a fev/ days and make a 
check of the field office files, I believe this would be the 
only satisfactory way to handle thisjn^ter and, if approved, I 
will follow_tliis_suggesiblQS»*

files any available copies of original complaints in the cases 
which had not yet been iavestigated and which were to be 
investigated so that the Bureau could examine these complaints 
and advise him as to whether he was exercising the best possible 
judgement in opening cases for assignment. 

A number of these complaints v/ere received yesterday 
from the Los Angeles Office and I have just conferred with Mr. 
Rosen* The supervisors tinder Mr. Rosen's supervision have reviewed 
these complaints with the follov^ing results: 



Total number of cases which should not

Total cases satisfactory to assign - 

Per cent of unassigned pendmg general

ItPm Clegg -telephoned this norning from Los tngeles, 
ff$ stated he found -thai: too laany general intelligence con-^ 
plaints have been accepted and placed in line for investiga^ 
tiue attention and that he will be able to close out a large 
number of these investigative inatters iM^diatelif* Be also 
pointed out that the office during the past several months hae 
accepted many so-called impersonation cases in which persona 
have apparently secured information but no r^onerj by indicating 
they are connected i;}ith the Federal Covcrnstent, ffe states the 
Urn £', Attorney at £os Angeles has not been inclined to prosecute 
cases of this kind, IIr» Clegg felt that it mould be desirable 
to have i>» Hood confer vith the % C^ Attorney in order that 
he might handle a feu of these cases so that the resultant 
publicity might be beneficial in the comnunity* It seevts that 
in that locality many persons attempt various schemes to defraud, 

Mr* Clegg stated he fur-'cher found that the principal 
fault at Los Angeles is that the agents do not finish the pending 
iDork in a certain locality but that they are inclined to do as 
they did at Ileia Orleans under B^* ffood when Mr, Clegg made a sur- 
vey there previously^ imC*^ an agent mill handle a matter at 
Eollymood and then go to Long Beach on the same natter but will 
not handle other pending natters at Long Beach, 2^, Clegg is 
going to arrange with Mr* Mood for the organisation and zoning 
of his territory so that the agents will not be following each 
other up in the variotts parts of the district, M^, Clegg stated 
he could suTsmarisfe the situation at Loa Angeles by 

First, an undue freedom in opening general 
intelligence co$«$, and 

Second^ a too loose adjuinistration of the 
asstgnuent of agents, 

I told !!r, Clegg X thought he ought to tell Br, Hood 
that the Bureau is eztremely displeased with this situation^ that 
$inilar derelictions mere pointed out to him at Uem Orleans and 
we are unable to understand why he has fallen into sinilar bad 
practices at Los Angeles^ that he will be giv$n CO days in which 
to correct this situation and if there is no iuprovenent in that 
period' of ttmejf it will be necessary to transfer hin to a smaller 
office.

It was possible during the .inspection to reGpmmend the cancellation 
of orders for 3 Agents under ti^ansfer to Los Angelesj to recommend the 
'transfer of. 3 Agents noYf-Et'Los.Angeies-.av^ay* to other officesj ,the -transfer of "' 
A Special- Agent (A) to another .office and the discontinuance of under-cover 
work in airplane factories on. the recommendation of SAC /Hood. 

SAG Hood -had requested one kddition'al stenographer* '..This was..- ' ' ./ 
recommended unfavorably due to the decrease in the initxmber of Agents and cases. 
Two weeks later SAC Hood advised that already the increased production by the . • 
individual AgehtB;' had reached such a ■point that the' Additional, stenographer ' 
was greatly needed and he was instructed to communicate with the Bureau -citing 
the facts which were different now from which they were at the- time of the ; 
■inspection ''tosupport hia recommendation v. .- . " - ■-'. .■ ' : - ■ * . . / *. ' . ■ 

. . OVERTIME '.'/■'■■'' 

■ • As'^to'the overtime performed .by the -Agents 'during' the month of 
December* 1939/ 3perf ormed- over 4- hours per day overtime; 2 performed from- 
3i to ^ hours; 4 from 3. to 3^-; -10 performed f rem 2|- to 3- hours; 12 performed 
from 2 t"- 2j hours/ 3 performed from 1^ to, 2 hours and 4 from 1 to 1-| hours. 
SAC Hood v?a3 instructed to/.talk persohaliy with those Agents who' had the lowest' 
overtime records. 

As to the time of departure of the Agents from the office in the 
early morning almost half of them were out of the office by 9 A.M. 77.75S. had 
departed before 9:.30 A.M, ; \ • . ; • - ■ 

CONTACTS 

Special, Agent in .Charge Hood appeared to be well and favorably kno?m in ' 
certain important quarters to certain important individtials in Los Angeles. 
One of the Agents indicated, however, that he was not. being criticised by the 
local police, but that the local police had not taken to -Mr. Hood in quite' the 
sam^. friendly iaanner as they had his predecessor ^ although it was pointed out that 
Mr.. Hood had been very busy on various types of v/ork# 

Special Agent if^ H. Osborne has done a. splendid job in the office in . 
promoting police training schools in southern California. 

The following, instructions were issued to SAG Hood: 

1. To organize his territory to increase production, and this 
work has begun: 

2. To arrange for a staggered arrival of clerical employees so 
that agents will not be delayed' when they desire files: 

3* To arrange for a more intelligent interpretation of the rule 
that agents should be conducting investigations from, 9 A to 5 PM;

important. Two weeks after the present inspection the volume of work produced 
per Agent, according to SAC Hood, had considerably increased. I believe that 
Mr. Hood has the interest and the directing ability. His defect has' been 
m his organising ability.

MMORMTOUM FOR THE FILES 



, ■ ' , I called Kr. Hugh Clegg at the Los Angeles Office 
and requested .that in connection with his present work that he 
check on tiio accotontanty, p.'.rticularly T, lU Mulherin, M* B. Myerson - 
and J, H. Roche, as well as those -accovintants that have been in " - 
their office of , preference for five or six ye<r3, to see that they 
are producing a voliiirie of work comparable to the nximber assigned 
to the office. Also to check on their overtiiiie, et cetera* 

■ Mvm Clegg. stated that as he had informed Mr* Tolson, 
a check on tv^o five-month periods reflected an approximate decrease 
of 4-0;^ in work done for the most recent period. He stated there 
appears to be no excuse for this decreaija other than poor' administration ' 
in making assignments of cases* / iiS an' example, he stated that an 
Agent in going to vSanta. Monica to cover a lead would go there without 
first having talked tQ| fe^. ffood q/o. see whether there mbto any. other 
leads to be covered in ^aFvlcinity; Mr, Glegg iiiindti th-^it if the 
latter .practice were followed the production v?ould be increased. He 
stated that the territory .,is being ironed today and upon its completion,, . 
the Agenta will be informed, as to their responsibility in. carrying 
out the plan. Mr. Glegg stated that- the decrease in production 
applies, not only to the accoimtants but to the agents as well. 

.1 pointed out " that the accountants mentioned are 
experienced in the sex^vice, have been at the Los Angeles Office longer 

than SAC Hood . arid iiave been up against some stern Special Agents in 
Charge, for f^hich reason '•he should check rather closely. 

■'Mr. Glegg isexltioned that he arrived at the Los Angeles 
Office after -six o'clock last Friday afternoon and the clerks, agents 
and all seemed to be there. They also, appeared to be working on Saturday 
afternoon. ,He did not notice,, however, whether these .particular accountants 
were present.

and I was able to help put him at ease after a few montenta. ^, 
I?I.^:aCO «o©s not create the inpression of being a very '1iea?y and

create a very profound iapression upon his higher type contacts. 

TShile in the Khox^lle office, I -iid confer with Caotain

that he Imd attended college in Seattlej however, he did state

accojaplishmento of the graduates* He was very imprcnsed with the pro- 
graxa of the Acadengr* He inquired if I loaer of any Agent of the Bureau 
who mif^ht bo considered for euch a position and X told hin that I did 
not) and that the Bureau was znost anxious to keep its present personnel 
in view of the national energency and I knew of no former Agents whose 
names could he furnished to him at this time. He stated that he Tf^ould 
coaimmicate with the two representatives from California and possibly 
with those out of the State as he thought it night be a good pl^m to 
have an outsider without any possible connections or acquaintances for 
thiv^ position. 

He stated he appreciated very ranch your interest in this 
matter and particularly the fact that you frankly stated you were not 
in a position to recoranend JA^!IE as you were not well exiou-^h acquainted 
with him. He stated that possibly none of the four names furnished by 
the Bureau would receive this appointment but he wanted you to under- 
stand that if they were not it was because of soj:iiething over which he 
has no control as he earnestly desired to personally offer the position 
to one of these gentlemen t 

Prior to w departure frora his office^ Mr. DOOKWEILER arked 
me i"^ I would be interested in the position of Chief Investigator for 
hif office and stated that he knew the Supervisors would raise the 
salary frora ^400,00 a month to whatever -^ wan receiving at the present 
tiao^ I thanked hiii coxorteouoly for this offer and stated my interest 
was in the Bureau* n work and program at the present tine and I could 
not consider that position regardless of any remuneration. This offer 
froti him was not^ in my opinion^ any attempt on his part to obtain a 
Special fi^mnt fror^a the Bureau at the expense of the nationcd emergency 
for I am convinced he is not fully aware of the situation an it exlr-ts 
and doej^ not realize the problem that the Bureau has in connection with 
this matter, I endeavored to point it out to him, nevertheless^^ he 
offered me the appointmeno, Xou may be assured that I have no intention 
whatsoever of seriously considering this offer* 

WGWfBILFi: stated that it was his eaimest desire to co- 
operate fiiLly with the Los Angeles of f*lce and anything in this County 
that is desired that c?m be obtained through him is outb for the ask-* 
ing. He offered to place a nan in his investigative staff at any time 
in an undercover capacity or to do anything else that we might desire. 
He stated that former District Attorney FITTS was a publicity seeker 
and W(^s motivated by this in handling matters relating to national 
defense.

He suggested that we have frequent meotinps and I will 
follow this closely and develop his friendship as I believe he is 
sincere in his efforts to make a creditable showing aB District At- 
torney* He is not a particularly forcefxil, dosiinent individual, but 
recognizing his shortcomings, he is endeavoring to surround himself 
with capable persons to handle matters for him# I will follow this 
closely and keep you adriscd es to the contact with his office ♦ 

I thought you would be interested to Imov that he was th^ 
former Congressman for this district and did not run for re-election 
several years a/?o as he realised that he had not and w-^uLd not obtain 
seniority rights over Congx-ossman BUELL SSYDER (Deiaocrat of Pennsylvania)

A conference was held in Memphis, Tennessee on Sunday, 
May 25th, at mtoich there were present the following: SAC Fierstone 

from Knoxvillej SAC Guinane from Birmingham; SAC F/yly from Jackson, 

Mississippi; SAC Fletcher from New Orleans; SAC Hallford from Little Rock; 
SAG, Bryce from El Paso; SAC Andersen from Oklahoma City; SAG Kit chin from 
Dallas; ASAC Acers from San Antonio; SAC Abbaticchf5rafla^§i8° Scheldt from" 
Charlotte. '^ 

Another conference was held in San Francisco, on Tuesday, ^ 
May 27th^at which there were ^i^esent the following: SAC Bfojister from But^te^ 
SAC Newman from ^t Lake; SAC Duffey froyphoenix; SAC Cornelius from / T 
Seattle; SAC Swenson from Portland; SAC Hood from LosZ)geles, and SAC NathanJ ' 
from San Diego. Assiaeaht Director Connelley, ASAC Vincent of the Los Angela* 
Office, and Agent Van Pjeit of the San Fw6icis4o Office, also participated in X 
this conference, as well as SAC Pieper./ jb> 

: ^ 

Charts prepared by Mr, Devereaux in Chicago were discussed, and 
without exception the SACs seemed to be enthusiastic about them. The only 
sstion made was that the Bureau furnish the field with photographic cooie 
Iher^harts prepared in Chicago. I explained that it was^)ot the Bureau's 
sirCthat there be a set pattern for them to follow, but that they v.ere to 
'^ <SO,t something that would be of benefit to them. They then countered, r. 
in Memphis and San Francisco,' with the suggestion that the Bureau furnishLN 
to the^-field a chart showing the growth and developnent of the Commuftist PartyC - 
*0|*ehe«)oinJ whe:ije ,it^,inyolved 'their own districts. ^ 




^

^"^ /.- In addition >to;t^en charts, we also discussed with the SACs the 
suggeistidp of "SAC Sackett, the quarterly conferences with law enforcement 
officers, the' statistical aQC9iBiiJ|4^ents of the offices, the question of 
morale, discipline, \pssip and the necessity for secrecy, our relations with 
ONI and^G2, the i^atter of±t^gjn|^8, the American Legion orogram, technical 
surveillances, and suc»»Wth6r matters as they expressed an interest in. 
My remarks to the SACs followed the lines set forth in Mr. Tammts memorandum 
of May 28, 1941* 



i^^m^:;^^ 



During the coiarse of the' conferences, the follov^ing suggestions 
. were made: 

V SAC Fletcher s\xggested that the Bureau dispense with the use of th§^ 
1 status letters. He feels that the status letters are being sent out in a 
T|rather routine fashion. Each letter necessitates an answer. It is Mr. 
lFletcher»s opinion that a regular follov;-up letter woxild serve the purpose. 

SAC Kitchin stated that he felt the Bureau's bankruptcy suT^ervisor 
was not properly evalviating the general situation with respect to all matters' 
in sending letters to the field on bankruptcy cases. He pointed out that 
"etters were being received instanzcting that bankruptcy cases be given 

.ediate attention and reports submitted by designated dates j that in order (C* 
Ito comply with such instructions it was necessary to let v^hat he, Kitchin, -^ i 



i\ 



should 



A 




felt was the more important work of the office slide. I told him this 
be called to the Bureau's attention, and that in instances such as he 
described he should communicate with the Bxireau explaining vdiy it ^'^as 
impossible to give attention to a case, if this v/ere a fact. 

SAC Fletcher suggested that the Bureau, in its applicatio:n blanks 
or in the general information fiirnished to applicants, elaborate upon v.hat 
is meant by a "working knowledge" of a foreign language. He pointed out 
that h^ had interviewed any number of' applicants for the position of Special 
Agent, whose application was apparently referred to the field solely because^ 
their knowledge of a foreign language; that when given the foreign language 
examination a great majority had stated tiiat they had merely studied the 
language for a few years in school and actiially knew nothing whatever about 
it. Fletcher feels that if there were a more specific statement as to the 
exact requirements in connection with ability to speak a foreign language, 
much time would be saved in interviewing applicants who do not possess the 
necessaiy qualifications. He also pointed out that oftentimes these applicant 
were required to travel two or three hundred miles when they had no chance 
whatever of an appointment. 

In the San Francisco Office all of those in attendance, with the ' 
exception of Mr. Connelley,./«4io was temporarily absent on a telephone call, 
asked that the Bureau be informed of their opinion concerning the Bxireau's 
letter of May 22ad, Instructing that contacts be made with state presidents 
or qto^^ for the purpose of

tlie QEMiJ^ ottm ge^espiona^ cases i^^rould do 
a^ se]Jtiii|? tte ^jan aigr other thing, i They felt ^ 

that the ii^poart^ce of ntiti^ Biters pei^Ling at the present tijae 

was such that no ;Wite^^ from iihe investigation of these matters. 

2. It was the view of those assemble that it would be embarrassiibg to contact 
the various or gaalsiations, chambers of conrmerce, et cetera, offering to make 
speeches. There was a disctissidh of the necessity for handling this matter in 
a aibtle and diplomatic maimer. However, it was the feeling of those present 
that it would immediately become known that the Bureau was interested in such 
an educational pro-am. 

3# The SAGS pointed out that they had been infoiming all the police offj|cers 
that the FBI at the present time was so busy handling pending matters that it 
was necessary to request the police to make certain investigations for us. 
SAC Vincent pointed out that recently on two occasions he had been asked 
by the police how it was that he coxald find time to make speeches when so 
much work was pending^ The comment was also made that police officers had 
informed the SACs that, knowing of the large volume of work pending, they 
felt it was much more important to handle the investigative work than it was 
to conduct police schools, and for that reason they were making no requests 
for such schools. 

A. The SACs voiced the opinion that, regardless of making statements to 
audiences to the effect that we are interested only in complaints concerning 
espionage, sabotage axKi related matters, we would be completely snowed under 
with unf otinded complaints if such complaints were repeatedly requested from 
audiences when speeches were made. 

5. The SACs were of the opinion that much more value would accrue to the 
Bureau if speeches were only made before highly selective groups, and that the 
smeller number of speeches made the better they woixLd go over. They were of 
the opinion that if all the organizations knew tliey could have a Bureau ^eaker 
at any time they so desired, they would not be nearly as much interested as they 
wo*uld if one were hard to get. 

6. They pointed out that it v»^ould be bad to turn down any reqiiest for a 
speaker after iiiey had made a specific offer to the organisation to make such 
speeches, and accordingly sometimes it would be necessary to travel some 
distance, which would require a great amount of time, in complying v/ith 
invitations extended. In this connection they pointed out that a large ^ 
number of organizations insist upon the SAC appearing and are not interested 
in hearing an agent. 

The SACs stated they understood the Bureau's program and desires 
as outlined in the letter of May 22nd and would do their utmost to see that they 
were carried out to the letter; that, however, they did desire that I inform you 
of their views in the matter. They stat^ they could appreciate the value of 

- 3 - 



such a program, but thought at this time concentration upon actual investiga- 
tive work was much more important. 



Mr, Cornelius suggested, with reference to the quarterly law enforce- 
ment conferences, that all sessions of the conference be kept closed. He felt 
that a summary of v.^hat the principal speakers were going to say should be given 
to the newspaper men, as well as permission to take pictures, et cetera, before 
the conference began. By giving out such summaries it was Cornelius » opinion 

I that they would be better able to coritrol what the press printed. He also 
pointed out that he had experienced difficiolty in one or two instances in 
getting those out who should not remain after the open session had concluded.- 

Mr. Pieper offered the suggestion, which v/as concvirred in by the 
others, that the Btireau press releases be made shorter and more in line with 
a newspaper man»s viewpoint of a press release; further, that the press releases 
sent to the field by the Bureau not be dated, inasmuch as they are often received 
a week to ten days after their date. 






\ 




Both in Memphis and in San Francisco the SAG s voiced the opinion 
that unnecessary leads of a general nature were being set out. They pointed 
out particularly leads which come to their offices calling for the office to 
check its indices on certain names, ifi^ierein such leads were circulated to all 
field offices* I explained why the Bureau's index was not complete and coxild 
not contain eveiy name appearing i^ the field office files, and suggested that 
on, those leads which they considered tmnecessary they should refer them back 
to the field off ice from which they came. The supearvisora in the national 
defense division wiH also be instructed to watch for any unnecessaiy leads* 

Mr. Van Pelt offered the suggestion that Igrpist applicants be given 
the typing test immediately upon reporting for interview and examiijat ion j 
that the tests thereafter be graded aM in the ei^nt^^^^^^^^^^ to 

pass they be so inf^biked,. ^ neces^sity of an intei^ew and 

also the dictation of a re^^ stal/^ lie felt this would : save quite

SAC Pieper made the suggestion, which was conciirred in ty all others 
^in attendance except Mr. Connelley, that the Bvireau endeavor to have ONIassiime 

he entire responsibility for the investigation of all Japanese activities. 
_ieper does not feel that the dual responsibility in the hajndling of such 
matters is practical. Mr. Connelley stated he was directly opposed to the 
surrender of investigative jurisdiction in any field wherein prosecutions * 
might be had in the United States Courts. 

Mr. Pieper brought up the question of supplying informaticn to ONI 
and G2, specifically stating that he has completed the Italian Siirvey in 
the San Francisco areaj that ONI has asked for this inf oraation on numerous ^ 
occasions and he has always responded that the investigation was still under 
way. He feels that some definite policy shotild be set forth as to exactly 
v;'hat should and what should not be furnished to ONI and G2. I explained to 
him the Bureau»s policy as it now exists, which leaves some discretion to the 
SAC. It was his suggestion, as well as that of the other SACs present, ttot 
this should not be a matter for their discretion, but that there should be a 
uniform policy throughout the field. In discussing the matter it appears 
that the various SACs in the Coast area are following different policies, 
even though they are submitting reports to the same corps areas of the Am^y 
and Navy. 

Cornelius, in Seattle, states ONI and G2 have requested copies of 
all reports and that they want such reports because of their coverage interest. 
Acting under his interpretation of the Bureau's policy, he has declined to 
furnish them with information concerning individuals, unless the individuals 
are of actual interest^the Army and Navy, or unless the individuals reside 
near Army or Navy bases. He does furnish them with general information 
concerning subversive activities and with specific information regarding 
such activities when the specific information is requested. 

Newman in Salt Lake furaishes ONI and G2 any information requested. 
If the information is delicate, he first secures Biireau authority* He does 
not furnish general information, because^ he states they have never requested it. 
Pieper states, however, that the Corps Area Commiander has requested this 
information of him. Pieper states he uses discretion in each case, but he does 
think on liie general situation, particularly the survey reports, the seat of \ 
government ^ould furnish whatever it wants to the Washington headquarters of 
ONI and G2, relieving the field of tl^sresponsibilily entirely. Messrs^ 
Nathan and Swenson agreed with Pieper^s suggesttion, as did te> Newmapv

of anything not furnished to G2 or ONI locally, in order that the Bureau may^ 
should it consider it advisable, inform the headquarters of that service of 
the reason why the information was not fiimished. He feels if we lollov^ this 
policy we will be protected in any situation that may arise in the future. 

The suggestion was made by the SACs, both in Memphis and in San 
Francisco, that a similar conference be held in the field about every 90 days. 

tl will take up with the Executives Conference the various suggestions 
set forth above. 






Respectfully, 




P. E. Foxworth 



I don t believe there ia much merit in any of the auggeationa 
or oritieiana outlined in thia memorandum, and I particularly am 
not aympathetic to war da the objeotiona voiced to the policy of

Dear Sir:

I have carefully noted the contents of your 
letter of June 16, 1941, 'with refe3rence to the conference of ^j\^ 
Special Agents in Charge held at San Francisco on May 27, 1941 • ^^ 
I regret that you find it necessary to e:55)ress your displeasure 
at the escpressions of those present with reference to the instruc- 
tions contained in Bureau bulletin to the field pf-Ma3r^227^1941"r"^~'~ Z^ '^ 

There has never been ah^'attempte^op^yT/arL' ■ l"0"— r^ 

deliberately misinterpret any instructions that |b.f ,Burfau has ",, 

given me, and such was not the case in this instMcel'/^fh^ptirpose* ''■j/'''" 
of the instructions in the bulletin to the field] e)/^'*^-''"'^' ■ -iqi^i ...■::■ -I'i---- 



is perfectly clear and to me the means of acconrolishing it is very 
clear. VfcDERH BUREi^y ~ ' 



^^i^m>m\' 



feel 




7' i v:V4i 

I f 3el that^ the'^ 4)proach to Chambers of Commejpce 
and other similar organizations does amount to begging for the 
opportunity of making talks to these organizations. The conference 
offered the opportunity to express a candid opinion concerning this 
particular program, and the Bureau has always encouraged the expression 
of such opinions on the part of employees. My opinion, even if ivrong, 
was given honestly and sincerely, and I am sure you are aware of the 
fact that I do not take the easy way out in handling any matters i^toich 
the Bureau entrusts to me. The personal sacrifices which I have made 
in the past and I am more than willing to make in the future do not 
indicate a selfish and disinterested attitude. 

You may expect my full conpliance with the instruc- 
tions contained in your bulletin of May 22, 1941 • 



Very tr^ily yours.

RELATIVE STA^IDING OF THE 
SPECIAL AGENTS IN CHARGE 

As requested I have endeavored to group the 
various Special Agents in Charge according to their re- 
lative standing and ability, considering their investi- 
gative and executive possibilities. In the various groups 
I have endeavored to give each a nimerical relative stand- 
ing^ however in many instances there is very little choice 
as between them based upon my knov/ledge and opinion of 
them. 

As to the employees who would be of the calibre 
to handle the entire New York situation, Mr. Nathan would 
present the only possibility. As to Mr. Nathan, however, 
I believe he would be eliminated by reason of his age and 
the difficult job necessary from a physical stand point as 
well as the other problems. This also determined the 
placing of him third on the list. 

My listing is attached herewith. 



Respectfully submitted,

Director 

Federal Bxareau of Investigation 

Washington, D. C. 

Dear Sir: Rej SELECTIVE SERVICE 

It has come to ray attention that the nimber of complaints 
of violations of the Selective Training and Service Act referred to 
this office by local law enforcement agencies has been increasing 
over a period of several weeks • [ 

It has been the practice of such agencies in making routings 
investigations of vagrants and suspicious characters to ascertain 
whether such individuals have Selective Service registration cards 
in their possession. Persons who do not have these cards are booked 
for violation of Selective Servi^ce and this office is notified. 
Usually it is necessary that the prisoner be interviewed by an Agent 
in order that sufficient data be obtained to determine, either by '] 
checking with the appropriate Local Board or by requesting investiga- 
tion by another Field Office, whether the Subject actually registered 
for Selective Service. ; 

It is requested that the Bureau consider the advisability of 
approving a form similar to the jone enclosed. I believe that the"^;use 
of such a form by law enforcement agencies would facilitate the proper 
and expedite handling of these cases. 

Law enforcement agencies in outlying districts appear reluc- 
tant to arrest persons who have no registration cards in their pos- 
session. In all probability this reluctance would rapidly be overcome 
if copies of a form similar to the one enclosed were supplied to these 
agencies and their use encouraged by the Field Offices. 

/V^^' ^^^ Very truly youils.

In connection with the |i300 which Jones alleged had 
disappeared, SAC Hood of the Los Angeles Office telephonic ally 
advised me, while talking about another matter, that Jones ap- 
parently desires to enter suit against him. Hood. His lawyer, 
hov/ever, told him that he should see him at lis office on Tues- 
day morning before anything v/as done. 

I asked Mr. Hood if he had received any information v/ith 
reference to the handling of this case. He stated that he had 
a letter indicating that it will be taken before the Grand Jury 
on Wednesday and that he would try to contact the U. S. Attorney 
in an effort to get some action before the case is taken before 
that Jury. He advised that he would keep the Bureau informed of 
any developments. 



Respectful!

Director 

Federal Bureau of Investigation 

Washington, D.C. 



Dear Sir: 

With reference to the handling of incoadng sail in Bureau 
Field Divisions, the folloring suggesticms ^ere prepared and eubaltted 
to m by Special Agent L F« SELLS of this office, and m fonmrded 
to the Bureau for consideration. 

The plan has special reference to copies of reports received 
frois other Field Divisions and if approved, would eUiinate the necessity 
of searching the indices every ti^ a report is received. It is estiiaatd 
that the senices of one clerk, no^ spending his entire day at mil search- 
ing, could be utilised in other file roos wch In addition, these reports 
wcRild not be delayed for searching purposes and could inwliately be routed 
to the Agent's desk for attention. The workings of this plan can best be 
set forth by esa^las. 

ilssusing that the Los Angeles Field Division is origin in a 
particular case arri the Los ingeles pile nuaber is KXWXWO, a report 
is written and investigative leads are set out for the Chicago Field 
Division. Shan the Chicago aeld Division prepares the HUC report, the 
Los Angeles report will be referenced in the usual mnner and in the 
usual place* Hos^ever, in the space provided for "Copies of this Report^ 
the follorii^ tdH appear: 

5 -Bureau 

2 - Los ilngeles (lOO-COOO) 

2 



aen tos Ingeles receives this report, the copies can inaedlately 
be attached to the file and routed to the Agent and no searching is necessary. 
The Agent dictating tte BUG report in Chicago will have picked up the file 
nssber shoim above froa the upper right hand corner of toe Los Angeles 
Field Division report. If leads had been set out for six other offices, 
all M reports would come back to the Los Angeles Office with the file 
nuito set out.

PERSONAL 

MEMQllANDUM FOR J. EDGAR HOOVER. 



As I think you know, I spent several days in 
California discussin^^ the general alien eneny problem 
with the Anoy. I have been dilatory in expressing my 
appreciation of the kindness v/hich the field office 
of the Feder.'-1 Bureau of Investigation showed me, I 
was particularly appreciative because I knew that what- 
ever tirne the agents spent with me had to be made up 
by them at the other end of the day and, particularly . .. -^ 

^ _, .,»th ?irysHooQ. However, 

I saw MrwPieper almost continuously; i/- re-ct he "parti- 
cipated in all the negotiations with General DeWitt ,and 
his staff, I do not attempt, of course, to pak^\>fTiM-^ ^5 
Mr. Pieper's technical ability in his field. However, 
I think you v/oulcl like to know that from the point of- ^^ 
view of an outsider like myself, I was amazed by his J%}\ 
grasp of the general situation, and particularly by his { ^ - 



in these times, they have been extremely busy. 

I did not spend much time with firTpsHood, However, 



i^ 



skill in negotiation. Also he had the complete confidence 

of General DeVvitt and the Military Intelligence Officers, Pc;^ 

and his judgment seemed to be accepted without question. 

I do not recall having ever in the past written 
such a memorandum about a Federal employee, but Mr. 
Pieper's ability v;as so unusual, and he was so helpful 
to me th^.t I- should give him whatever credit I can.

I received your letter of January 7th, 1942,

somewhat surprised to see my mail go directly to the

This happens to be one of those tim^^when I 
took a very important step for the Director, affiCwell as

Dear Miss George, 

If this letter ever reaches you, (and J 'm sincerely 
hoping that it does), I shall be eternally grateful for the 
efficiency of the F.B.I. 

First of all let me remind you of my ever^so-^slight 
connection with you. I am the young woman who was in charge of 
the Elisabeth Arden exercise department in Los Angeles, and who 
was more than mildly interested in your fascinating career. 
During a conversation at the time of one of your appointments 
at the salon, I made an outstanding mental note of the fact 
that you were a personal friend of Mr. J. Edgar Hoover. (l 
shall now make a confession) At that time I decided that if 
my husband should endeavor to become affiliated with the FBI 
I would come to you, or write to you and ask your help. 

That time is now. And since I will not admit defeat, 
I shall leave no s tone unturned until I have done everything 
possible to help Paul. I approach you now to request a word 
of recommendation from you to Mr. Hoover. That might aid my 
husband in being accepted. 

As to his qualifications, there is no doubt but he [d 
be excellent material for the Department . He passed the Cal- 
ifornia State Bar examination in 1938 after studying at Stanford 
and Loyala Law School. He was a better-than^averaje student- 
and has maintained a very high record in the practice of his 
profession. His aptitude for accounting and his love for his 
profession m^ke him a top condichte for a position with the F.B.I. 
He applied at the. local office some time ago and has also written 
a personal letter to Mr. Hoover, but as yet he has heard nothing, 
and he is naturally discouraged. 

It is because of my belief in Paul's ability that I 
have written you this letter (without his knowledge) , hoping 
with all my heart that you will be able to help him. ./> 

J remain most sincerely and appreciatively ^ - -cS^'

that the asuount of time consumed in rovlevdn,^ files to re--

equivalont to the amount of tine ^^iruich -^Tould be required by 
the receiving office in looIdLnj up the file nuinbor on the

Kood many places In these oarts. One bad featiire of the 
situation is that the local authorities do not know who 
the alien enemies in their nvidst are. V-'e tried to ob- 
tain some information on the Japanese, at least, diu'ing 
the last registration, but we were not permitted to do so. 
1 hope that"the matter will soon be worked out so this 
inforpetion can be forthcoming.. The original policy of 
retaining this information in Federal circles .was 
undoubtedly sound, because we were, at that time, techni- 
cally at peace with the Axis powers. Now we are actually 
at war. We are In e combat zone and have had sufficient 
Indication of the danger involved to call for knowledge 
of who the potential saboteurs and fifth columnists might 
me. 

I often think of the trem.endous responsibility 
wh^ch you are shouldering, and I know you are always glad 
to hear that the law enforcement officers are Ln harmony 
both with your objectives and your activities. 

With best wishes, I am 






Sincerely,

RB: IRTIERHAL SEOORITY 
Dear Sir: 




"" As jrott are aware, ia an office the eize of the lx>s 

^ Angelee Office, there are a tremendoue number of complainte z^ceived 
, evex7 day from vieitors at the office as well as through the telephone. 
H The large c^jority of these have no particular value, and arrangements 

^ are made whereby the agents will immediately cell to my attention matters 
^ dealing with sabotage, poseible espionage cases, and matters of possible 
fY\ vital interest to the Army and Savy, so that they may be handled with 

dispatch* Sven so, with the large number of complaints received, it 
' is difficult to have these matters typed up promptly, so that investi- 
gation may be instituted with the benefit of all inf oraation that was 
\^ obtained from the infoimant* 



A number of the agents are of the opinion that it would 
facilitate matters considerably if a form of some type could be used for 
this purpose* 

It has also been pointed out that numerous inquiries 
aire made and additional information furnished by the complainants sub- 
sequent to their initial call, and in many instances, particularly if 
the infonnation did not appear of great value, there. is no record yet 
in the file room, as the complaints have not beeji dictated or possibly 
are still in the possession of the stenographer in the process of being 
typed. At any rate, there is by necessity delay in the typing and in* 
dexing of memoranda on what appear to be general cc^plaints. 

I do not believe that this is desirable, as it some- 
times leads people to think that we ere hot interested in the infor- 
mation they furnish idien it is aot possible a few days later to locate 
a record on their first complaint, and they seldom have the name of the 
Special Agent to whom they furnished the information* 

If a simple complaint form could be used and prepared 
in longhand by the agents at the time the complaint is made, in those 
cases that are routine and do not need to receive my prompt attention, 
they could be routed to the file room end the names of the subjects and 
complainants appropriately Indexed; and then the matters could be con- 
sidered individually to determine whether individual oases should be 
opened* 




^ I J .- ' 



Director 



It is entirely posuiola ia tmny oiTicaa this is aot 
a particularly earious problem, and a rule applicabxe in othar sec- 
tions of tho country may not fully mmt the noeda of tho Pacific Coaet 
Offices* It is, tkerafore, sugf^aatad that the Bureau considar the 
request of thia off ica to poxmit a coieplaint form to ba used. 

At prasant, tho aertricaa of at least eight special 
agonta ara used ayery day until nine ?,M* and two n£ eats are on duty 
all day Sunday, for the sole purposa of recaiving complaints. At 
other intervals, it Is necassary to hava additional agants availetbla 
to racaive talaphonic comr>lainta# 

It is raaliaad that ona objection to utiliisin^ the 
complaint form is that, as a result, agants tand to obtain only the 
infom^ation roquaatod on tho rorm. Howaver^ it is bolioved moat of 
thia criticism can be mat by not having this form ask siany dafinlta 
questions • She Min feature of the form la to provide a prompt, ef- 
factiira manner of havine the names of tha Gubjacts end ccmi^lainants in- 
dexed into the files for imrediata rafaranca.

Hoover finds 
L A. office 
of FBI 'fine' 



Chunky, fast talking, head 
G-man J. Edgar Hoover arrived 
here today on an inspection tour 
of the western offices of the fed- 
eral bureau of investigatio»' and 
fiiund the Los Angeles officii **ex- 
ci.aient" j 

\» Hoover had warmest u raise 
for Richard B. Hood, head of 
the l<os Angeles office, laiid^l 
the work Hood Is doing to keep 
down espionag'e and sabotage in . 
this vital war production cen- 
ter. 

As head of the FBI, Hoover ex- 
tended thanks to the Los Angeles 
police department and the sher- 
iff's office for the wholehearted 
cooperation extended to the FBI 
in its gigantic task of carrying on 
all its myriad war activities, in 
addition to the regular peacetime 
routine law enforcvement. {i 
I "Every officer of the FbI has 
(een working an average ofVfive 
loura a day overtime, oven his 
jlght hour shift, 365 days a yfcar. 
to keep pace with the work/' 
Hoover said. 



I'*In addition to handling all 
trmy or navy intelligence in- 
cstlgatlons affecting civilians, 
7e must enforce the national fie- 
ictive service laws and di al 
i'ith a crime situation that 1 Is 
Increased greatly since the 1 «- 
ginning of the war. . U 

"In the first three months of the 
war, the general categories of 
crime, all except murder, increased 
from 3»/2 to 12 1>^ per cent. 

The No. 1 job of the FBI now, 
however, is the prevention of sabo- 
tage in war industry and the pur- 
suit and arrest of enemy espion- 
age agents. 

Since January 1940, there have 
been thousands of cases of re- 
ported sabotage," Hoover said, 
"but we have definitely established 
only 198 cases and, resulting from 
these cases was the conviction of 
32ShP«^o7is. 

"None of these persons ooij^ 
victed was an enemy agent, 
however. They were found to 
be either Axis sympathizers of* 
disgruntled employes but not* , 
saboteurs In the pay of" thi 
enemy. \ 

"We shouldn't be smug aboAt 
this, however, and say that sabo- 
tage rings can't do damage. Our 
alertness in the past has been the 
biggest form of our protection. We 
should continue always to be on 
the alert foi- any sabotage moves." 
Hoover asked the general public 
to watch for suspicious oocv?*- 
rences and to report such happ« p- 
mgs to the FBI for investigati< n,

Director 

, Federal Bureau of Investigation 
Washington, D, C# 

Dear Sir; 

I am enclosing for the Bureau* s consideration 
and possible approval a copy of a letter directed to Captain 
EDSTARD £• PEELER, Artny Air Force, Intelligence Officer, 
Victorville Army Flying School, Victorville, California, 
in reply to his letter of June 25, 1942 • In his inquiry 
of that date he requested infonuation concerning RALPH ¥• 
CARSOII, vdio was making application for an important position 
in the national defense program, and who has submitted my 
name as a reference. 

For the infonaation of the Bureau, I have been 
acquainted with RALPH W# CARSON, former practicing attorney 
in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for at least 25 years. Our 
families were well-acquainted for a number of years before 
that, and I know that he has a good background and is be- 
lieved to be reliable and trustworthy in every v/ay. In event 
the Bureau approves this communication, kindly forward it 
directly to Captain PEELER. 

Very truly yours.

MEMORANDUM FOR MR. GLM 




RE: MONTHLY ADMINISTRATIVE REPORT 




Mr. Hood has made certain suggestions with respect to the monthly adminis- 
trative report. He points out that on page one of this report there appears a list 
of the names of Agents assigned to each office, the number of days each 4gent is on 
duty, the number of cases assigned to the Agent, both general and accounting, active 
and inactive, ftr. Hood recommends that the listing of this detailed information be 
discontinued because it requires a. great deal of time to secure it and in lieu 
thereof Mr. Hood believes that the totals of all these. figiires should be set 
forth instead of the detailed listing which is the present practice. So far as 
Division Three is concerned there would be no objection to the adoption of Mr. Hood's 
recomm.endation. The totals would be sufficient for Division Three with the exception 
of the total of column three. The figtxres set forth in column three should report tte 
total number of Agents Sli^^ctive investigative cases assigned at the end of the 
period rather than the total number of cases assigned to Special Agents at the end 
of the period. This same suggestion has been offered to the Bureau in the past and 
has been (^disapproved on each occasion. The disapproval has been based on the fact 
that the listing of such assignments brings to the attention of administrative per- 
sonnel the assignment loads of each employee under his jurisdiction and makes 
possible the correction of any overassignment without difficulty. 

\ have conferred with fJr. Pennington concerning this suggestion and so 
far as ho is concerned it co^ild be adopted in a modified form. TyJr. Pennington 
advised me that it is absolutely necessar"- that the information presently shown in 
the report be continued for Special Agent Acco^mtants^ otherwise the Bureau would 
never know when Accountants are performing general investigative work. 

P5CPM1PMTIP1I* It is recommended that Kr. Hood's suggestion be adopted 
so far as Special Agents are concerned but that the field be requested to furnish the 
deta'lefi informat-^on for the, Spec ^cal Agent Accountants. For your information, there 
is attached hereto a santple of th^ report presently prepared and ^j^^^i^Rg^ *h® 
rrsnort o'llch would be prepared if this recommendation is estracoyed oy Vne Bureau. 



Tt m^:"- be des-'rable at this time to consider othe 
^ uWhe chanTOd in connection with the preparation of the 
wh^^^sWoxW res'ilt In a considerable savings of tira'3-

into ass^Hned end unassigned in each cate<yory. This information is not needed hy the 
Chief Clerk's Office in so far as cases received from other offices are concerned. 
Briefly, the field would not have to divide the cases at the end of a period into 
those received from other offices and those arising in their ovm field districts if 
th*B sn/^f^sstion is adopted. As previously mentioned, this breakup is not needed in 
n vision Three except with respect to selacti-ve service cases and it is desired 
only hpcanre TV. Harho de5:^'res this information for his records. It is believed 
t'rn t7ould materially cut down the amount of work in preparing the report and the 
onrnple report attached reflects this su^^estion. * 

The field offices in submitting their monthly administrative reports at the 
present time are also submitting a detailed report of national xJsfense Cases. This 
In reflected in the attached sample report. This information is not used at all and 
It iB recommended at this time that it be discontinued. 

It nay be desirable in connection with the monthly administrative report 
to roniiost the field offices to furnish information as to those Special Agents who 
are bein^r utilised exclusively in a supervisory or administrative capacity. It is 
'^^-Vrisrc^ri t/^*s information is of interest and importance to Bureau officials and often 
t^m^o the best available information of the Bureau is not accurate. This would require 
vory little extra work in connection with th? monthly administrative report and 
vjo noMlr" nt all times know the total number of Agents in. each office engaged exclusively 
^n n nup3i-visory capacity. The sample report attached requires that this 'information 
bo furbished. The suggested form to be followed would not alter in any way the present 
policy of reporting dai^St^SSfiefeases.. h ^« ^ 

Respectfull:/-^

"I talked to SAC Hood at considerable length about his last inspection* 
He indicated a complete understanding of all matters including delinquencies • 
Hood, in my opinion, is an outstanding man. He has the appearance, the personality, 
intelligence and stability which should be part of the make-up of an Agent in

Dear Mr. Hoover, 

I was privileged to be a guest at the recent luncheon for 
the California StatehP«a.;a^o^,34cers Aasaciatlon for which 
S^pecial Agents in ClfeV^^iH^oMpieper aid^a than were hosts. 
'This luncheon wao one of the most interesting and at the 
same time different from any that I have attended. I 
thought you would be interelsted in knowing that very many 
favorable and complimentary comments were made after the 
luncheon by those who attended. I think the procedure ini- 
tiated was a very wise move; on the part of the Bureau and 
one that was definitely appreciated by the various Peace 
Officers present. ;

Miss Beahm_ 
Miss Gandy_ 



Pursuant to your request I telephoned Mr o 
Connelley at Chicago and inquired concerning his opinion of ^^ .Nease 
Assistant iiAC%Belmont^ Connelley said that based upon his 
observations both at ^^^ew ^ork City and Chicago he thought 
Belmont did not have the capacity to handle the Chicago 

Office. He said as a matter of fact he thought ihat he could 

only handle a very small office if any at alio He said he based 
his opinion on his obeervati on of Belmont's general hnomledge^ the 
handling of personnel^ judgment and ability to analyse a situation 
in addition to other qualities. Connelley felt that he was OK as 
an assistant but that he did not have a very high ceiling. 

I later inquired of him as to whom he might recommend to 
run the Chicago Office. He said certainly there was no one in Chicago 
now who could handle it and he was most sceptical about anyone in the 
field who could possibly be spared. He said he wouldf go over^ the list 
and when^he called back he^recommended in order SACsX^onroyjX^^odj, 

f^Pieper ^y^icKee ^/\i)onegan anof^^rantley . He said he understood that 
probably none of these men could be relieved of their^resent assign- 
ments and he would thereafter recommend in order SAC^BugasJ(Thornton^ 

^SearSj)\DraytonyX^oucy ^d)\Boardman. I specifically inquired of him 
what he thought of SAO/^iper at Buffalo. He said fte had had but two 
or three contacts with Piper and did not know him very well but from 
those contacts he felt Piper was probably just average. He further 
stated that he felt the Chicago Office was run down^ that the fullest 
possibilities werenot being realised there and that the office needed 
someone who was strong enough to rejuvenate the whole situation.

He said Belmont apparently was carrying 
at Chicago and might get along in a small 
too pointed out that Chicago has lapsed into a second 
which it should not be and that with "a strong man in 
could soon be built up into a key office^ ^ ^ .

BE: SgLfeCTIVE SERVICE 
Dear Sirt 

Every effort is being mside in the Loe Angeles Field Division to 
reduce the number of pending goleotive Servioe oases at the earliest possible 
time* Additional Speoial Agenta are being placed on this assigniaent, and a 
equad of 28 Agents is Tx<m handling these oases* A review of the oases dls« 
closes that many of the persons delinquent in this area are itinerant migratory 
Workers who are exceptionally hard to locate* They are not known* they have 
no definite home a, and even the persons by whom th^ have been employed do 
not, in many instances, know their names* ; This is especially true in the, work 
camps maintained by the larger ranches* It has been found that most persons 
of this type sooner or later have some dealings with local law enforcement 
agencies and every effort has been made here to have the officers check indi- 
viduals coming into their custody to be certain that their Selective Service 

statue is current? and in Loe Angeles frequent checks are made in "skid row** 
by the local department for violators of the Selective Service Act* As a 
result, from five to seven hundred individuals are handled by Speciel Agents 
as a result of reports received from the police deparlsnents each month* S<»!ie 
of the smaller departments have one officer devoting his full tla© to this 
work and here in the City of Los Angeles, the entire time of one Special Agent 
is taken up by interviews with the persons being held at the Central Jail as 

potential Seileotlve Service violators* In addition, a nim*ber of persons are 

interviewed vdio are held by ttte police on locftl charges irfiere there is any 

indication they may be delinquent* 

This has been mentioned by the Bureau to all Field Divisions, never- 
theless it does not appear that all off ides are oarryixig on an intensive 
program of this type if inquiries received here from other offices are any 
indication of the extent of the program. Aside from several nearby offices 
very\f0w inquiries of this type are received* As a result of the program here 
with the nearby offices, approximately 125 teletypee are sent and received 
e^ch day. It is believed that In the long run, the die eking of these persons 
through the police will result in the location of the largest number of 
Selective Service delinquents* The program Will be pursued vigorously here, 
6s it has been the most successful single program that has yet been indiugurated 
which finally brings good results* 

The suggestion is submitted to the Bureau that authority be obtained 
to maintain contact with some friendly radio stations and requests made there 
for brief ennouncements to be made at the conclusion of news broadcasts 
and between programs to remind the oitisens that they should keep in

touch T/ith their Draft ^erds. T3ith the caritioiil nsnpower situation existing 
in the country, it is believed that this would be acceptable to most radio 
stations and it ia kno^m definitely at least one station in Los Angeles tsrould 
be pleased to 4o this for the Bureau. The announcesaient would cairy the name 
of the Bureau if it Were so desired^ for example » ^The F,B.I. reqpieet? that 
ell persons registered under Selective Seririaeiaaintain close contact with 
their Draft Boards*" Another type of corsaent if tho Bureau* s name were not 
to be used would be^ **Have you notified your Beloctive Service Board of your 
change of address? Manpossrer is necessary to the war effort. Keep Id close 
contact with your Celoctive Service Board,*^ Otiier similar quotations of the 
type could bo easily prepared. I trlil appreciate being advised if the Bureau 
will pendt the Los Angelee Office to inaugurate this progi^am# 

Contact is biaring mcde igrith the Federal and State Agricultural 
Departenents to obtain a list of all mediuEis of oopmunications with the farmers 
so that articles can be inserted in their publications and delivered persoimlly 
at grange neetinsa end the like MMs the reqft^st that ranchers, farm oismere^ 
and responsible persons verify tdth their employees that the latter are not 
dcllrtquont ^itj: their Draft Boards* llaiiy of these publications ore read by 
the farn hands thenoelves, and in those instances whore these publications 
appear in the Spani^ language, th0 itcaa could appear in that language. It is 
believed this will reach a large number of parsons and aiako theca conscious of 
the Bureau's Selective Service program* 

In Loc Angeles arrangeinents are being made t?ith the Police Department 
to have auxiliary police ^deavor to locate soine of the persons residing in 
the city v^o cannot otherwise be fduzid* One or t^ hundred such eases will 
be handled to determine hm successful this prograta can be* These auxiliary 
officers are under the direct ccmtrol of the police department and will be 
supervised closely by regular police officers* 

In an effort to locate some of the fugitives of this type of case, 
Agents of this office nfto are t?orking on national defense assignments other 
than Selective Service ^re being requested to furnish their names to the 
Selective Service Supervisor if they desire, on their o^ tijfne in addition 
to their regular woiic^ to conduct en investigation looking totmrds the appre- 
hension of a Selective Service fugitive* Many Agente in national defense 
^ work are eager for a fugitive invest lotion and will, it, is believed, gladly 
\ perform overtime to effect the apprehension of a fugitive. 



*i?hile tmny of the investigations can be performed by Special Agents 
to locate Selective Service violators, there ere iiiany of them ^blch can be 
handled more auccesefully by correspondence end every effort is made to conserve 
the tiia^ of the Agents and handle these cases by routine c(»s^unication* It 
hea been found that in many oases^ it takes several days for an Agent to locate ;
